Digital Extremes’ free-to-play PC shooter Warframe is to become a console exclusive for PlayStation 4. It appears that Sony’s pro-active approach of seeking out PC games and producing them for PS Vita has been expanded to include PlayStation 4.
Creative director Steve Sinclair told IGN that “Sony caught wind of [Warframe], and said, ‘Hey, what do you think of bringing it over to PlayStation 4?’, and we were very surprised to hear that.”
“Sony has been incredibly supportive and available and [PlayStation 4], in my opinion, is incredible to develop for. It is awesome, and I don’t want to speak disparagingly about any existing or prior platforms, but we showed Warframe for the first time to our entire studio, and everyone had their jaws on the floor, how 1080p, silky smooth and beautiful it was.”
“So, I’m really, really enjoying working on the machine.”
The game will make full use of the new DualShock 4 including the touch pad and will be bolstered by extra content each month.
